LSM English editor Mike Collier invited University of Latvia professor Daunis Auers for a chat on the subject. Topics range from the most eye-catching campaigns through the unusual collision of local and continental issues and the likely differences between this ballot and last October's Saeima elections. There's also a pink nationalist Mini, a very prominent Frans Timmermans, a trendy of academics turned politicians and an anti-liberal Green.
It's an informal to-and-fro recorded at Robert's Books, the English-language bookshop in Rīga.
The Central Election Commission of Latvia has an English-language website for more details of the European parliamentary elections.
